Knollwood

Rainbow Riders Knollwood site was designed by teachers, families, and administrators over several years.  An original floor plan was drafted and then revised after several staff participated in a week-long study tour in Reggio Emilia, Italy.  The early childhood programs in this city, located in northern Italy, are considered the best in the world. 

Inspirations that were incorporated into the final design of the Knollwood site included an open lobby for families and staff to gather, much like the Italian piazzas; low windows with a great deal of natural light throughout the building; an art studio for children of all ages to represent their understanding of their world; a large outdoor space for exploration and play; and lofts that provide a multi-level element to the classroom environment. 

The history of this 14,000 square feet facility is evidenced by pictures and documentation throughout the building along with on-going projects showing that the members of this learning community are committed to the growth of our school.
